I love cooking seasonally, and when October rolls around I find myself wanting to bake this recipe. It is TRULY foolproof! I recently decided to try another "apple cake" recipe and was very disappointed - there weren't enough apples - the cake was dry and bland. But this one never fails and I want to share it with you - I hope you decide to try it.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350
  2. Combine the apples and sugar in a bowl; let stand 10 full minutes.

  4. Combine the oil, vanilla and egg white - beat until slightly frothy. Add to the flour mixture and mix well.

  8. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.
